MEGACHURCH PASTOR STEPS DOWN DUE TO INFIDELITY

The senior pastor at Grace Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota -- a Twin Cities "megachurch" -- has left the congregation he's led for 16 years because of marital infidelity. The Reverend John Eagen's resignation was announced to worshippers at the church's Sunday services. The 55-year-old Eagen, who's married with four children, is credited with helping develop facilities including the church's new 45-hundred-seat auditorium. The chairman of Grace Church's board of elders says the congregation is "grieving," but adds, "John Eagen was not the head of our church; Jesus Christ is the head of our church, and our mission will continue."
